Strawberry Parfait Dessert

This is the Perfect Dessert for Summer.....
especially if you want something refreshing.....
and lite. It tastes so gooooood when it's hot outside.
You just have to give it try and let me know what you think.

I found this in Food & Family from
Kraft Foods a number of years back.....They have
the best and ideas on how to save
money on food.

The Top photo shows the layers better (I only
the mixture for about 15 sec. in that one,
but it wasn't as easy to pour as when I blended for
30 sec.,
but it didn'tshow the layers as well.

We made this 2 ways (the way the recipe calls for
and the way my husband wanted it)
I like his way better...with the Reddi Whip (in a
can) and a cherry on top.

We wanted you to see the difference and be able
to pick the way you like it better. It makes its own
layers of light & fluffy gelatin while cooling in the
refrigerator. I forgot to mention that it is the fastest
dessert to make as well. It only took about 5 min.

1 Pkg. Strawberry flavor Gelatin (0.3oz.)
3/4 c. boiling water
Ice cubes
1/2 c. cold water
1/2 c. thawed Cool Whip

Dissolve dry gelatin mix in boiling water in bowl or
saucepan...(I did it in a saucepan)

With a Lg. (2cup) Measuring Glass put cold water to
the 1/2 c. line and add ice cubes to make it 1 1/4c.
Add to gelatin mixture, and then pour mixture into
blender; cover and blend 30 sec.

Add whipped topping to blender and blend until

Pour evenly into 4 dessert dishes.....or Parfait
glasses (we used goblets and I think it looks more
elegant and beautiful that way but you choose for

Refrigerate 20 min. or until set. Store leftovers in
refrigerator. Makes four servings but I would pour
less in each glass (than is shown here) because this just
made 3 servings and it should have made 4.

For reduced calories...Use Sugar Free Jello
